We had a funny incident when we went to buy our bus tickets to the airport, two older people cut in front of us and there were only two sales people and a long line. One was busy with another customer and only quickly sold the ticket, but the other had to deal with this nice older lady who did not know how to new bus system worked and did not have the right card and basically just took up a bunch of time and in the end did not buy a ticket…as the line behind us grew longer and longer. I had my money in hand and so I was ready when the older lady finally finished. The person behind the desk apologized, but we were in no hurry, so it was okay. My new rule is though….if you are going to cut in line you have to be quick!

Getting to Kalmar for Easter was a bit of an adventure so I will sum it up quickly. Kep in mind it is cold, we did not get much sleep and I had a horrible stomach ache the entire time because of eating too much dried fruit to get it out of my backpack…

Checked out in Delft -Train to Tilburg – short day trip - train to Eindhoven - bus to airport – we were super early – hang out in airport - flight was delayed close to two hours - we almost had to stay the night because the airport was about to close – we made it!

Arrive at Skavsta after midnight - bus to central station - find an open door – get kicked out by guards - central station closed until 3:15 – negative degrees outside- go stand in 24 hour 7eleven- leave because weird guys are being rude- find open McDonalds and sit in there until the train station opens where we wait for our time to leave, but are not allowed to sleep on the benches.

Train tracks under construction - bus to other train station - wait for train - take train for a few hours- get off train to catch bus - catch bus - catch train.

FINALLY ARRIVE IN KALMAR!!!! It is now about eleven in the morning, little sleep has been had, but we can relax in Victor's parent’s new apartment and enjoy an Easter weekend!
